African Telephone Wire Bowl Black, White, Yellow
Handcrafted in Kwa-Zulu Natal, South Africa, Zulu bowls, pots and baskets were traditionally crafted of clay, Illala palm grass and other natural materials. With the advent of telephone wire, the Zulu people began using traditional weaving skills to make this telephone wire beautiful art.
This Black and White Telephone Wire Bowl, accented with an Ripe Lemon center, is used for salad, fruit, bread and more. It can be hand-washed with soap and the patina becomes better with time.
In addition to the bowls and plates woven by hand, the telephone wire is used to cover bottles, weapons, cutlery, as well as making jewelry and any other artistic manner the Zulu people find, as they put art in every part of their life.
